New Balance CRT300VW

01

Image

—01. Suede and mesh upper.

Words

The CRT300 stands out as a unique retro-inspired tennis shoe amongst all the others out there. Pairing CT300 styling – originally from 1979 – with a REVlite sole, the classic silhouette is given a modern update. An array of bright colours have been released, but this simpler white option is my preference.

New Balance M990 TB3

—01. Via Strato.

Words

These 'triple black' 990s might not win everyone over, but I'm on board with their monochromatic colour scheme. While light grey is certainly the obvious choice for this desirable US-made style, this version would make for a great alternative.

New Balance 2040 GL

—01. ENCAP midsole.

Words

The 2040 is one of the lesser seen US-made New Balance models. Certainly not as popular as the 998 or 993, it fairs just as well in daily wear, and ups the ante in running terms. The shoe is filled with technical advancements, making it easy to see why it's the brand's most expensive model.

New Balance M997GY

01

—01. Made in USA.

Words

It's hard for New Balance to go wrong when they use a variety of greys on their classic models and that theory definitely applies to this 997 reissue, now available through Firmament in Berlin. The interesting texture on the tongue and heel give the shoe enough detail, while the silhouette is where the true appeal lies.

New Balance MRT580

—01. Navy.
—02. Light Grey.

Words

Lightweight Revlite soles have been added to New Balance's MT580 to create this modern interpretation of the brand's classic silhouette. The MRT580 is available in two clean colour treatments, but I can't help leaning towards the grey version.

New Balance ML999

01. ABZORB midsole.
02. Padded tongue.

Words

The 999 isn't one of New Balance's most well-known models, but this grey pair is one of their best this season. A subtle mix of materials and neutral shades make for a clean design, and a nice looking trainer.

New Balance MRL996 Grey

01. Suede & mesh.
02. Grey.

Words

All of my favourite New Balance styles lately seem to be in a plain grey colourway. Plain grey 998's are all over the Japanese shops but these classic 996's are a little easier to acquire for those of us in the west, from shops such as Sweden's Tres Bien Shop. They're even more throwback than 998's, with a slimmer profile.

New Balance 1500 GWS

01

01. Made in England.
02. Encap Sole.

Words

The 1500 might be my favorite New Balance model. The shape, smaller 'N' logo and the size of the tongue all make for a nice looking trainer.
